I wanted to keep the necklace simple, but wanted to incorporate some different color than the copper and purple of the cab. I remembered these sweet little Czech glass "twin" beads I bought a while back. Not sure what I was thinking...am not a seed beader! I devised a way to wire-wrap them into a chain though and they work perfectly with the purple cab. I added a second strand of copper "hammered bar" chain I had in my chain stash.
Wanted to add a dangle beneath the flower, but couldn't figure out what. I remembered some Czech glass teardrops I had bought and they really complemented the purple cab and the Czech glass in the chain. I oxidized everything with LOS and let it tumble for an hour or so.
This was such a fun piece to make and you all know by now that I am a sucker for Sue's lampwork! In fact, I purchased one of the 1st pairs of chiclet beads she posted, and just last week, swooped in for 2 more pairs!
Thanks for stopping by! Go show some love to our guest designers and the AJE team!
